“Bird watcher's delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

Be ready to get some exercise when you go to the North Lighthouse located on the extreme north tip of Block Island. The road stops will short of your destination, and you must hike along the beach on sand or river rocks. The North Lighthouse itself is an impressive structure built of granite blocks and displaying a recently renovated tower. The surrounding brush and beach has been designated a wild life reserve and abounds with birds, both migratory and domestic.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2011

Whether you bike, moped or drive, make the trip to the North Lighthouse. You need to park and then walk. It's a trek but if you can stand it, do it. Since no vehicles can be taken out there, only a few people make the walk. And the beaches around the lighthouse seems as if no one has walked on them in a while.

“Great lighthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011 via mobile

It took us about 45 min to bike ride from the ferry port, great time to sight see and spend family time. It is a long walk from the point where you have to leave your bike or car. Great Views!!! Price is resonable.

“Serene and lovely...instantly brings that relaxed feeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2011

I visited Block Island for Memorial Day...Driving all the way from Albany NY to park directly in the parking lot near the Ferry Terminal. Took the ferry from there, and was at BI in 30 mins using the High-Speed Ferry.
The weather was perfect, partly cloudy - that helped us keep cool while biking around the island, and partly sunny in the afternoon - that helped us enjoy the beaches and the oceanfront.
The ocean is nice and clean blue, and you get the awesome deep blue color when the sun is high. The inside of the island is superb for biking - dispersed houses, awesome landscape and the greenery make it look like a dream vacation.
If you're anywhere near, this place is a must go!
